Is the following a Hadith?

“A person is deprived of sustenance due to sins that he commits”



Yes, this is a Hadith recorded in numerous Hadith collections on the authority of Sayyiduna Thawban (radiyallahu ‘anhu) as part of a longer Hadith. Imam Ibn Hibban, Imam Hakim and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahumullah) have declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4022, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 872 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 493. Also see Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 313 and 317)
